Jacob’s Advert Song 2016 – Singer and music information for Jacob’s Mini Cheddars ‘A Match Baked In Heaven’ TV ad.
Song Title: Total Eclipse of the Heart.
Artist/Singer: Bonnie Tyler.
This latest Crackin’ commercial shows three young guys lip-syncing to Bonnie Tyler’s classic power ballad ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’.
Joining these lads on lip-sync backing vocals (or should I say baking vocals?), it’s three open packets of Jacobs Mini Cheddars, with the little crackers acting as tongues – Genius. One packet also takes on the songs closing line ‘Turn around bright eyes, turn around.’
Listening to this ad kinda reminds me how you unfortunately don’t get singers or songs like this anymore. Taken from Bonnie Tyler’s fifth studio album ‘Faster Than the Speed of Night’, Total Eclipse of the Heart was released as a single in 1983 and has now sold over 6 million copies worldwide. This massive hit reached number 1 on both the UK singles chart and the US Billboard Hot 100, which is quite an achievement for any British artist.
Welsh vocalist Bonnie Tyler must be getting pretty familiar now with her music featuring in comical TV commercials, with ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ having recently been reworked for JUST EAT’s ‘I Need a Balti’ advert. The same song has also just been used in Heineken’s ‘Moderate Drinkers Wanted’ campaign.
The above ‘A Match Baked In Heaven’ Mini Cheddars advert was uploaded to Jacobs YouTube page on the 25th of February, 2016.
